Upcycling Shoes

By Craft Trends Contributor, Lacey. Check out our Craft Trends board on Pinterest!

Upcycling has become a recent craft trend. Finding things that may be inexpensive and changing them to create a better product is both a good way to save money and to keep yourself entertained during hot summer days. One of my favorite things to shop for is shoes and at times I cannot find the exact pattern or design I’m looking for. Luckily, crafting exists and these fun ideas will give both the opportunity to revamp your old pairs of shoes and get exactly what you want.

Kids Crafts: Scrapbooking

May is National Scrapbooking Month, so I thought I’d share some ideas for scrapbooking projects that are perfect for kids of all ages. Scrapbooking is an awesome way for children to express themselves through a combination of pictures, words, drawings and photos and to learn about the world around them, and document their experiences. Scrapbooks and journals also make wonderful keepsakes for years to come.

It’s a great time of year to get outside and learn about birds in the backyard and on nature walks. This tutorial offers some free printables and great tips for keeping a Bird Journal. Try taking your bird journal to a variety of habitats, your backyard, the park, near lakes and swamps, the zoo and nature preserves and be sure to bring a camera, colored pencils, crayons, etc to help your kids remember what they discover.
